Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas from Daisy...

And from our "gingerbread" house to yours!

I wish you all the blessings of the Christmas Season!

Time just seems to be flying by, so much to do, so much to see and not much time at the computer to share what's been happening! There haven't been any "finishes" for me, I'm still working on hand quilting the quilt (which will never be done in time for Christmas!) and I've got a few knitting projects sitting untouched.  I did get away for a few days.  There was a real estate convention in Atlantic City last week and my boss and I went from Tuesday to Thursday.  We stayed at Harrah's marina and this sand sculpture was in the lobby.

 After a series of little mishaps and inconveniences, Harrah's upgraded us to a suite in their Waterfront Tower, which was pretty spectacular.  I felt like royalty with our fancy bathrooom...

and our beautiful bedroom with an incredible view of the bay...

our lovely dining room, where we enjoyed our room service breakfast...

And even more beautiful views of the bay...

and our relaxing living room, where yes, I did sit and quilt for awhile!

We felt totally spoiled and enjoyed every minute of it.  Once I came home, I decided I needed a little Christmas. The Boss had suggested we go into Philadelphia to see the 'Christmas Village' which was set up by City Hall.  It was a collection of temporary shops which sold everything from mulled wine to German Christmas decorations.  It was set up around the city Christmas tree...

I just love City's such a beautiful building!

Grace also wanted to do some shopping at Tiffany.  We did look at all the displays in the store, which was great fun!

Then we had dinner at Max Brenners...the food was incredible and the service was first rate. I was impressed that when they brought me the wrong food by mistake, they not only corrected it, but comped both my meal and my husband's. I'll definitely be going back.

Now I guess I should make some preparations for Christmas!  Most of the shopping is done, the tree is up with lights and the packages to far off places are mailed. We're not sure that we're decorating the tree this year, Daisy likes to chew most, kitchen towels, and I'm guessing that Christmas ornaments would be a real treat!
